Lucas Moura to leave Tottenham Hotspur at the end of 22/23

Lucas Moura is expected to leave Tottenham Hotspur as a free agent at the end of the season. Antonio Conte has confirmed that the club will not be extending his contract any further, and he will be walking out in the summer once his deal runs out. 

The Brazilian has spent five years with the club since joining from PSG. He has made 213 appearances for the Lilywhites, scoring 38 goals and providing 27 assists. He has also been a part of some of their most memorable wins – particularly the victory against Manchester City and Ajax en route to the 2019 Champions League final.

“This is the decision of the club, his contract will not be extended,” Conte said.

“Honestly, in my mind when we planned the season Lucas Moura was an important player for us,” the boss explained.

“But if you see from the start of the season until now Lucas played maybe one game, also with pain in the Champions League against Marseille and also not the whole game with us.

“First of all I think the damage is for me and the team. A player like Lucas is a good player. Also last season he helped us reach the Champions League.

“In my mind, my plan was to have him in my squad but we didn’t have the possibility to use him because of the injuries. It was really difficult this season especially because it happened twice that Kulusevski and Richarlison were both injured. To face this wasn’t easy. Then if you ask about the decision of the club, I respect the decision of the club.”
